UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, TUESDAY, MARCH 3, 1936
By CHARLES PADDOCK
A lot of tears have been shed
recently over the fact that if the
Oregon athletic machine doesn't
stumble onto a gold mine some
place, Duck teams will soon be
playing Linfield, Willamette, and
The stunning news never got to
the cerebrum of more than one of
a hundred students. Has anyone
heard anyone say “so what” yet?
That might be a valid comment.
Students from small schools will
appreciate the fact that its not the
size of the opposing institution
that makes athletic competition
Isn’t it the truth that these very
students at Linfield, Willamette,
and Albany get just as much en

Of course, this business of be

largely a business proposition.

the truth of that, either. But,

There’s something about a home
talent team that builds up that old
school “spirit” in a way that no
amount of rallies or preachy edi
torials can do. If Oregon had teams
made up entirely of students who
were here because they wanted an
education, we wouldn’t be worry
ing so much about the Oregon
“spirit.” It would be here too.
This doen’t mean we would nec
essarily have to close the check

any rate why not keep our hard
earned shekels in circulation
among our own children.

It looks like both Oregon
schools are riding for a fall.
These are pinchy days and there
just isn’t enough money to keep
up the kind of a front that used
to be taken for granted. Maybe
it just isn’t possible to pull col
legiate athletics out of the fires
of “big business.” But it ought
to be worth a try. We’ve just
driven a couple of graduate
managers gray - haired asking
them to keep Oregon on a map
that it didn't belong on.
Pretty soon there will just be a
hole in the ground where Oregon
used to be, unless it gets back to
solid earth. There seems to be just
one way to keep the athletic pro
gram from blowing sky-high, and
that’s to put Oregon teams in the

from the usual run of better

of the piece is set as the charac

To Jim Hnrd
The University of Oregon's crack
swimming squad became co-cham
pions of the Pacific coast when
they overwhelmed the Washington
Huskies 4S to 36 in Gerlinger pool
Two new Pacific coast records
were established by the Ducks in
the torrid meet. Jim Hurd of Ore
gon edged out Jack Medica of
Washington in the 100 yard free
style, but was forced to set a new
record of :54.4 in this event. Vic
Smith of Oregon State held the
old record of :55.4.
The Webfoots closed the meet by
establishing a new time of 3:13.8
in the 300 medley relay. Jim Reed
and Hoskins of Washington swam
the backstroke in a dead heat.
Then Chuck Reed and Gene Caddy,
the Husky ace who had previously
set a new Northwest breast stroke
mark in the meet renewed their
battle. This was also a dead heat.
In the last event of the relay Hurd
beat Harvey of Washington by 15
feet to better the old time of Stan
ford by five seconds.
Jack Medica, the Washington
flash, broke the old pool record in
the 440 event when he swam the
distance in 5:09.
The Duck mermen took four
first places in the individual com
petition and both relays, while the
Huskies got the other three. Chil
ton and Bert Meyers won the div
ing for Oregon.
Gerlinger was jammed with
people and many were turned from
the gates. The Northwest confer
ence meet will be held in Gerlinger
pool on April 29.

Tonight In Twlight
Of Conference Play
To Hold Relays
Three Teams to Compete
In Interclass Relays;
Five Events Listed
Colonel Bill’s Oregon cindermen
will compete Saturday in the first
interclass relays on Hayward track.
In the meet there will be three
teams representing the sophomore,
junior, and the combined fresh
man and senior classes.
The freshmen and seniors are
running together because the
small number of seniors in the
squad makes it too difficult for
them to compete with the large
number of candidates in the other
classes. So the seniors will bolster
the immature freshmen.
Five events will be run:
